Oliver and the potty

Today I decided to just bite the bullet and get this potty training thing on the fast track. I put Oliver on the potty when he woke up and he did his usual business (poop and pee). Then I put him on the potty every hour after that for the rest of the day except when he took his nap. He peed every time but two, and once was because he had just wet his diaper. He only had two wet diapers all day though! He woke up from his almost 3 hour nap dry! What a great job he did. Hopefully this will be a trend and I'll be able to keep up my end of it. Oh yeah, the first time he went today he told me he had to go so that's another good thing. Toward the end of the day he would fight a little going in because I think he was just tired of sitting there but it'll be easier once he can tell me every time he needs to go.

Cool dude!

Oliver rediscovered his sunglasses yesterday. He will actually wear them now instead of just ripping them off to play with them. Doesn't he look so cool?! I love the outfit he's wearing, too. (Thanks, Aunt Sarah)

Two Happy Faces

Wyatt is getting quite talkative. When he talks he smiles like he's proud of himself. What a cute smile! I can't seem to get him to make the huge smile when I have the camera out so this is cute, but it's not the cutest. I'll keep trying.

Some interesting links...

Here is an alternative to the financial "bailout" - from Dave Ramsey.

Here is someone with a plan to have 100% green energy within 10 years. They also let you know how YOU can help

Sleepy baby

Wyatt would not go to sleep the other day. Finally Bob held him like this to try to burp him and he fell asleep. What a cute face!

Adventures with Zoobah!

One Christmas my mom got Oliver this baby doll. She thought it would help him be a better big brother and learn to nurture and all that. He just gave him a name, Zoobah, a few weeks after Wyatt was born. He likes to take care of Zoobah while I take care of Wyatt. Here he is giving Zoobah some tummy time or, as he calls it, swimmin'. When Zoobah gets tired of getting his head up (good jobbym Zoobah!) Oliver will give him a snuggle break - just like I do with Wyatt.

Here he is playing with Zoobah in the bouncy seat. Zoobah looooves the bouncy seat! Oliver rocks him (rather violently).
Sometimes he straps him in and sometimes he doesn't. When the toys are on there he tells Zoobah what they are and what instrument they play. There's a dog, a bear, and a cat. They have a guitar, a drum and a trumpet.

After all that playing Zoobah is very hungry! Oliver used to have just the plastic part of this bottle. I found some fast flow nipples the other day and put one on since Wyatt won't be needing it for a while. Oliver is a very good daddy to Zoobah!!

The elusive smile

Wyatt smiled for the camera today during playtime. Isn't it a handsome smile?!

What to get me/us for Christmas...

If people insist on getting us presents (instead of donations) then I would love to have some new diapers. Bumgenius just came out with some new colors and I want some of the Clementine! Not to mention that I have two kids who are sharing 14 diapers. That means I wash diapers EVERY DAY and sometimes still run out. If everyone could get together and get me 6 more that would be TERRIFIC!
